Creating forward-thinking and innovative pieces of furniture years before his time, French stained glass designer and decorator Max Ingrand created design classics such as the Fontana table lamp, a bulbous white-painted metal frame with a satin white blown glass shade and globe. The Italian contemporary lighting company FontanaArte, of which he was the Art Director, produced many of his iconic works. Greatly inspired by the Middle Ages, Ingrand’s designs were reminiscent of the past yet relevant to the present, using modern materials such as metal and glass. Besides furniture designs, he also produced stained glass panels for religious buildings, hotels, and public spaces, including the Nôtre Dame du Pré cathedral at Le Mans and the Chenonceau Castle.
